Free digital tools

Software and office equipment are constantly changing, getting better all the time. I have been very lucky to work in an environment that encourages the use of the latest and free tools.  I have learned a lot and thought I would share the list with you. This list is very much of its time and subject to change.

To note: these are all generally easy to learn to use. Trust me, if I can learn it so can you. Some tools require more patience and and practice but there is no technical know-how involved.

Many these tools came from a list published by the UK’s Government Digital Service (GDS). While the guidance has not been updated since 2017, this list is still available and useful.
